The feud between Governor Godwin Obaseki and his predecessor and National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole has thrown the party into crisis of confidence ahead of the 2020 governorship election

A crisis of confidence is tearing the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo State apart as countdown to the governorship election in the state, slated for next year commences.
The bigwigs in the party are no longer seeing eye-to-eye, raising fears over the chances of the APC in the high-stakes governorship election, billed for August next year.

A chieftain of the APC, retired Gen. Charles Airhiavbere, raised the alarm over what he described as “heightened crisis and tension in the party’’.

He said that the APC in Edo had witnessed series of threats, brigandry and actions capable of destroying the fortunes of the party in the upcoming governorship election.

Airhiavbere cited situations, where according to him, APC leaders’ homes have been threatened by some interests in the state.

“We condemn these acts. They are unacceptable to genuine leaders of the APC in Edo State.

“We use this opportunity to also condemn the attack at the residence of our National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole by thugs.’’
